By FindLaw Staff on August 12, 2009 10:29 AM

Sentence for firearms possession is affirmed where government did not err in failing to file a motion under the federal sentencing guidelines which would have entitled defendant to a further sentencing discount for acceptance of responsibility as the the decision to file the motion is under the prosecutor's discretion and there was nothing unreasonable about the government's deciding not to file the motion in this case.
